Why does Hear-o need your help?

We want to provide others an artificial intelligence that helps. Our artificial intelligence (AI) is already ensuring that healthier babies are brought into the world or discovering markers of diabetes. Unfortunately, Deaf and Hard of Hearing persons have been neglected in the booming industry of AI so far. Before we can start with Hear-o, we have to collect an enormous

amount of data and develop a phone app. Here is where we need the help of the community. In order to train a high-quality AI, we need to obtain and process at least 1000 hours of video where people are signing which has to be transcribed to text. This is not an easy task. We will be cooperating with broadcasting stations, deaf community centers and creating our video footage.

How will be Hear-O developed

How will Hear-o work?

Hear-o is not just for calling. It will enable face to face communication and live translation of sign language during a public speech.

#1 Calling

A deaf or hard of hearing caller will communicate with the sign language towards a camera in her or his smartphone. Signs will be captured and translated by artificial intelligence to text and synthesized as a voice that the recipient will hear.

From the other end, the voice from the recipient will be translated back to the text displayed on the smartphone of the deaf or hard of hearing person.

Let's imagine a hypothetical scenario where Jacob wants to make a reservation at the Corner Bistro restaurant.

He finds this restaurant on the map and hits a his phone's call button. Jacob chooses the Hear-o app instead of a traditional call. When the restaurant employee picks up, he starts signing to make a reservation. Finally, the call is finished, and the reservation is automatically saved in his calendar.

#2 Face to face communication and presenting

Here we have another scenario with Jacob where he wants to present his great idea to the audience.

In order to do that, he starts the Hear-o app and chooses to the Sign Out Loud feature. Now, he has the opportunity to connect to the loudspeakers in the room, and he is ready to start signing. Everything he signs will be translated instantly to text and speech.
